Biography

Swiss author and cabaret performer based in Zürich-Oerlikon.

He is the author of one-man programs and satirical programs for television and radio. He has written theatre pieces, children's books, stories and novels. In 2002 he received the Kassel Literary Prize for Grotesque Humor, in 2005 the Art Prize of Zurich, and in 2014 the Johann-Peter-Hebel-Preis.

One of his most famous works is the "Totemügerli". It's a Swiss-German story based upon a fabulous creature, written to make fun of the particular dialect spoken in the Canton of Bern by using words sounding like the Bernese dialect but which aren't real words. His collection of witty short stories Der Stein (2011) features border-crossing between the realistic and the fantastic. It is humorous and thought-provoking.

Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes from the book Ein Feuer im Garten by Franz Hohler (Luchterhand Literaturverlag, 2015): "Ich bin in Biel geboren. Am 1. März 1943 kam ich in der zweiten Stunde des Tages im Bezirksspital zur Welt. Meine Eltern lebten aber damals in Seewen im Kanton Solothurn, und meine Mutter ging zur Geburt nach Biel, weil ihre Eltern in Biel wohnten und sie meinen Bruder bei ihnen lassen konnte. . . . Spater dann, wenn ich Angaben zu meiner Person machen musste und dabei las »geboren in ...«, schrieb ich über die Pünktchen immer Biel, weil es für mich klar war, dass ich in Biel zur Welt gekommen war, Montag morgen, 1. März 1943, 1 Uhr 15, im Bezirksspital, das mir meine Mutter später einmal zeigte und das heute das Kulturzentrum Pasquart ist."; Keller quotes author (letter)
